Joseph's (JT) Celebration of Life

Joseph was always an active and healthy kid until the summer when he was turning 13. He was on a mission trip to have fun and teach kids about Jesus, but two days in he got cardiomyopathy and was kept alive on life support for 7 days, then had an LVAD heart assistive device, and then a heart transplant. He continued living his life full of compassion and thinking of others first.  Instead of going on vacation with his Make-A-Wish, he gave it to Camelback High School so the students could have a shaded place to eat outside. He never felt sorry for himself and got a full scholarship to ASU where he was working on being a high school science teacher and then chiropractor. He was a loyal employee and always kept long term jobs since tuning 16. He spent his entire life inspiring and brining happiness to others. Even when he was hurting he still helped others first. January 2018, he received an artificial heart but his body was too ill to sustain life here on earth. He passed away and entered heaven on 2/2/18. We are asking for donations to help offset expenses.  We greatly appreciate all the love, support, and help everyone has been giving our family during this hard time!
